History making road trip

John Curtin Weekend

More than 600 Curtin University of Technology students and staff recently travelled 30,000 kms in 23 buses, four vans and 3 planes to 34 destinations across Western Australia to undertake community projects.

The group, known as Curtin Volunteers!, was taking part in the University’s annual John Curtin Weekend and helped many regional communities including Nungarin, Kulin and Tambellup to turn their town plans into action.

Metropolitan sites were also included ranging from John Curtin's house in Cottesloe, Kanyana Wildlife, Fremantle Police & Community Centre to name a few.

Volunteers were also engaged in two international sites: Curtin Miri campus, Sarawak and Institute of Technical Education, Singapore.

This year's road trip by the volunteers was probably the most successful undertaken in the program’s 10 year history.
